Produced and published by one of the early pioneers of birds eye perspectives, Albert Ruger, this depiction of Jackson, Michigan, shows the city in a period of significant growth and transformation. Founded in 1829, the city is the seat of Jackson County and was named after President Andrew Jackson. Some forty miles west of Ann Arbor, Jackson was an early manufacturer of automobiles and had long been one of Michigan's manufacturing hubs. The city enjoyed a robust transportation infrastructure in the nineteenth century which spurred economic prosperity and attracted immigrants from across Europe who established neighborhoods and communities along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day.
Birds eye perspectives were produced as marketing materials to promote civic buildings, religious, educational, and cultural institutions, as well as other economic and geographic features to attract residents and merchants alike. They bear a unique aesthetic and distinctive style that is immediately recognizable and transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. The latter portion of the nineteenth century saw the completion of numerous railroads in the area and allowed for a thriving trade industry to expand.
By 1881 Michigan had experienced a considerable influx of residents from America and Europe and developed a distinct culture that was shifting from agriculture to manufacturing as the nation began the so-called Gilded Age. This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history that captures a snapshot of one of the most iconic regions in the country.
